Join CSIF - The Calgary Society of Independent Filmmakers, Truck Contemporary Art in Calgary, and the creatures that call Calgary’s parks home for a night of outdoor cinema in Sunalta Park (located across from the Sunalta LRT Station and next to the Sunalta Community Hall)! 

At sundown we will be screening the short film CAVE SMALL CAVE BIG, directed by Joële Walinga, as well as the feature film BUGS, directed by the artist duo Life of a Craphead. This event is free and open to all members of the public; iron your antenas, bike in, and chill out!

CAVE SMALL CAVE BIG (2016) - Joële Walinga, 11 min

CAVE SMALL CAVE BIG is the first in a series of short films written by children. In this story, by 5-year-olds Madeline Harker and Adelaide Schwartz, we follow a Butterfly Girl's journey through inspiration and loss, and veer away to follow the lost object itself. The film jumps from character to character as they cope with the transience of ownership.

BUGS (2015) - Life of a Craphead, 74 min

Featuring situations like a university lecture gone wrong and a failed SNL episode, BUGS presents the absurdity of life within a patriarchal society obsessed with success. The DIY film sets the Bug universe right in the middle of the real world, creating multiple layers of reality that interact with each other. Produced over 2011-2015 with a large cast and crew of artists and comedians.

Under the dark cover of a new moon join CSIF - The Calgary Society of Independent Filmmakers and Truck Contemporary Art in Calgary for a night of sinister cinema in Royal Sunalta Park (located next to the Scarboro Community Association and the Calgary Tennis Club)! 

At sundown, we will be screening the short film YOU ARE A LESBIAN VAMPIRE, directed by Thirza Cuthand, followed by the 1977 Japanese horror fantasy HOUSE, directed by Nobuhiko Obayashi. This event is free and open to all members of the public; bike in, chill out, and get spooked!

YOU ARE A LESBIAN VAMPIRE (2008) - Thirza Cuthand, 3 min

In the dark night of a prairie city, a vampire considers her future with a fetching mortal. But requiring blood for sustenance brings a host of problems to the relationship.
Starring Shavonne Somvong and Carrie Gates

HOUSE (1977) - Nobuhiko Obayashi, 88 min, 18A

In an effort to avoid spending time with her father and his new lover, young Gorgeous (Kimiko Ikegami) resolves to visit her aunt's remote mansion. With six of her closest friends in tow, including the musically inclined Melody (Eriko Tanaka) and the geeky Prof (Ai Matsubara), Gorgeous arrives at the estate, where supernatural events occur almost immediately. A severed head takes flight, household appliances come to life and a portrait of a cat seems to contain an evil spirit.
